It was a memorable time to visit this zoo which is one of the India's best zoo. I liked it very much. Guides here are a bit expensive. Their charges are Rs. 100 per hour, which are the govt. approved charges. It generally takes 3-4 hours to visit the whole zoo. But it is worth to take a guide with... More

One of the biggest zoos in India. Has its own safari park for lions, tigers and bears. Since it was a holiday time, there was a heavy crowd and big queue for the entry ticket. So we decides to take a guide and paid Rs.200 to get tickets and take around as there was no other option. Very good mix... More

In India zoos are generally not that great but this one is an exceptional. We hired a guide to take us around. We also went on a safari but could not see the white tiger in wild. Our guide was great We spent about three hours but one can add on few more hours if you don't want to rush.... More

One of the few places in the country where sighting of a royal Bengal tiger and white tiger is guaranteed. They also have a lion, bear and deer safari which is thrilling. The latest addition of exotic birds is a must see. The park could have been better maintained and managed. However just to see the tiger in its glory... More

Time killer, if you've already visited zoos, this would not be any different experience.It would be a wise decision to avoid visiting on holidays, gets too crowded

A very interesting zoo with many animals that you cannot find in European zoological parks. A white tiger, crocodiles, cobra, pythons and monkeys are a few of the most interesting!

Worth spending a Sunday with family accompanied with young children.. See the excitement... Take a battery vehicle available for smooth move around... Boating has its own charm when you go couple... Stay float in the calm water to watch the birds and take a few wonderful clicks...

The place is certainly worth a visit. Do take the safari. Information is hardly available. For whatever i asked at the ticket counter, the only answer i got was "ask inside". When i entered inside, the only answer i got was "ask at the entrance". Avoid "guides" - they actually misguide. The one i got said that he'll show me... More

The greenery of the place will help you tranquilize. Although you get to see white tigers in the hot and humid climate of Odisha, the robustness of all the carnivores seem to have been lost. The open bird safari would be most rewarding.
